About Burford Garden Centre

The famous Home and Garden Store in the heart of the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire.

Since our inception, our family business has always done things a little differently. In fact a recent consultant we worked with concluded that two words could best describe Burford Garden Company – 'Something Different'. 

It is true that over the years we have worked hard on our perhaps subconscious goal of creating a kind of non-corporate retail utopia, as distinct from the UK high street as you might think possible, and far from the madding crowd as they say. Our products are different, and how we present them is different too.

With plants and gardening still at the core of our offer today (sourced in the UK where possible), the last ten years have seen the company develop apace, with a brand new 300-seater café and restaurant, the advent of our Food Halls, Heritage Kitchen Garden and Little Burford Children's Store, the launch of our Online Store and our enhanced House and Home offering. We have run pop-up stores in London, collaborated with the hugely enjoyable Wilderness festival, and have seen the launch of our very own Shoreditch Studio in the creative heart of the Capital. We have also forged a now decade-long ground-breaking social enterprise partnership with the Oxford-based charity Aspire, culminating in our winning of The Guardian Charity of The Year Award.

Our Burford store today is housed in an eclectic, yet beautiful mix of vintage glasshouses with timber framed sections – well maintained of course and it all works. We have the accolades to boot – Silver Gilt winners at Chelsea Flower Show, Oxfordshire Restaurant of The Year winner, and winner at the 2015 Oxfordshire Business Awards.

We employ the very best people and we work with the very best suppliers and manufacturers that can be found, supporting local artisans and craftsmen wherever possible and with a strong emphasis on British and heritage products. Our buyers work tirelessly to find those individual products that generally cannot be found elsewhere.

Of course none of this would have been possible without our loyal customers, new and old, who have always supported us. As I reflect on our 40 years as a family business, the one thing I ask my team is to remember to always say thank you. So, on our behalf of everyone at Burford Garden Company, we thank you for choosing to shop with us, now and in the future.
